(Seguin) – The Seguin and Navarro baseball programs were scheduled to co-host a tournament this past weekend with games at ‘Smokey’ Joe Williams Field and on the NHS campus in Geronimo, but wet field conditions forced all of Thursday’s action to Williams Field, Friday’s games to East Central, and ultimately prevented the Matadors and Panthers from facing each other on Saturday.
Seguin (0-4-1) went 0-3-1 in the tournament, falling to East Central 10-4 and Cedar Creek 9-2 on Thursday, and again to East Central 3-0 on Friday. The Mats’ final Friday game ended in an 8-8 tie with Northside Homeschool.
Brendon Burgess went 2-6 with two RBIs and three runs scored over the course of the tournament. Cody Kachmar went 3-9, drove in two, and scored three times. Colton Demuth went 2-5 with a double and an RBI. Chase Boenig, Eli Edwards, Hayden Haas, and Jayden Herbold each drove in runs as well. Herbold, Brayden Wieding, and Brennen Turner each produced two hits in tournament play. Kendall Harborth was 1-3 with a run scored.
Navarro also ended up with three losses and a tie in tournament games that were also the Panthers’ first four contests of the season. They tied Akins 6-6 and lost to Northside Homeschool 6-4 on Thursday, then fell to Cedar Creek 3-2 and East Central 5-2 on Friday.
Evan Hendricks drove in two runs and Joe Burch scored twice against Akins. Riley Lipton recorded the team’s only RBI, while Zach Moore went 1-2 and scored once. Moore and Dakota Leopold each drove in runs against Cedar Creek, while Mason McCalip doubled and scored once. Hendricks produced an RBI while Moore notched a hit and a run scored in the loss to East Central.
Seguin is back on the field tonight, visiting Smithville at 7 p.m. Navarro competes in the Floresville tournament this Thursday – Saturday.
